Migraine: It is of course best to avoid the triggering factor (it may be certain food, bright light, loud sound etc). You should take a beta blocker as well which will prevent the arteries from going into spasm (the common factor that causes migraine). Once the headaches start, it is best to lie down in a dark, silent environment. You can take simple medications such as motrin or exedrine. Or prescription.

Best to ask your: Neurologist or pain doctor. Choice of medication depends on frequency and types of migraines. You could be on abortive or prophylactic medications or both. Ask you doctor.
